Information For Clients

Our process is very straight-forward.  We require no ID or proof of address when you arrive. Simply come to our location at 263 Dunn Avenue, and our volunteers will ask for your name and date of birth (this is for record-keeping purposes, and helps us predict how much food we need to acquire each week).

Come In For A Visit

We are open to the public for food service during the following hours:

Wednesday 10:00AM to 4:30PM (Senior & Disabled Only)

Thursday 10:00AM to 4:30PM (Services Open to All)

Friday 4PM to 8PM (Services Open to All)

Saturday 10:00 AM - 4:30 PM (Services Open to All)

To ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for all community members, we recommend arriving a few hours after we open. Wait times can be very long at opening. Fifteen minutes prior to opening, we distribute randomized numbers to anyone waiting in line prior to opening. These numbers determine the order in which community members will enter the food bank. If you receive a higher numbered card, you have the option to wait at the library where a volunteer is stationed to notify you when it's your turn to shop. Anyone who arrives after numbers have been distributed will be served on a first-come first-serve basis.
